EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - Southern Illinois University Edwardsville track and field and cross country coach David Astrauskas has been named an assistant track and field coach at the University of Wisconsin.

Astrauskas has led the SIUE program for the past three seasons and has been with the Cougars since 2002. A National Coach of the Year in 2008, Astrauskas helped the Cougars to numerous conference championships and All-Americans during his tenure.

"David has been a positive force for the SIUE track and field and cross country program over the last several years. We wish him well at Wisconsin," said Dr. Brad Hewitt, SIUE's Director of Athletics.

Astrauskas oversaw 77 All-American performances at SIUE. He also coaches former SIUE standout Alicia DeShasier, who finished fourth in the javelin last week at the U.S. Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore.
